Our challenge: To provide a mobile facility to allow alongside testing and simulation
In 2012, STS Defence were awarded a Contractor Logistic Support contract by the MoD. The brief was to support the Royal Navy’s Outfit 1254 and 1270 UHF SatCom systems. Part of the support requirement was to provide a mobile facility to allow alongside testing and simulation.
Housed within a TEMPEST-approved cabin to allow classified operation, STS Defence’s SatCom vehicle was specifically designed to support the UHF SatCom systems. It does this by allowing design verification, functional testing, grooming, harbour testing and training to be undertaken ship-to-vehicle without the need to access satellites.
Designed and built in-house using 3D computer aided design and manufacturing techniques, the vehicle system can be deployed to provide an essential maintenance capability.
